Man....that.....ugh..... (hard to find the words)

Classic British comedian....I hate seeing him go. A lot of Americans won't know him, but I was a fan and I'm saddened by this news.

Damn, didn't hear about that. He influenced quite a few wrestlers and held several titles, including NWA Heavyweight Champion.

Comedian Victoria Wood passed away today at 62.  Way too young.

Everybody Loves Raymond Actress, Doris Roberts.

She looked pretty good for 90.  She was a funny lady.

If we had separate threads for each death this important information would be much easier to manage.

Can't chew gum and walk at the same time eh?   ::)  Sucks to be you,

So what are they going to put on his headstone? Formally, the formally guy called Prince?

Prince looked nearly skeletal in that picture of him, me thinks he got cancer and pneumonia finished him off.  You herd, herd, herd..heard it here first.

Prince doesn't particularly surprise me.  He looked like a sickly little man that could get blown away by a stiff breeze 30 years ago. 

Chyna either.  Hers is a bit sadder for me because she fell on hard times due to the way HHH got her booted from the company.  I always hoped at one point she would pull her act together and have another run in the WWE worthy of the legend that she is.  She's still not in the WWE hall of fame btw..... frikkin Sunny is in the WWE hall of fame... the woman who's job was to stand in the corner and look pretty.

He had a lot of hits but he was also a first class nut.  Like Michael Jackson level crazy.  Google up Kevin Smith's interactions with Prince.

I don't really agree with his assessment that the reason she isn't in there is because they can't trust her on stage.  They inducted the Ultimate Warrior and even when he was on good terms with the company he was a lunatic and they never knew what he was going to say.  All sources point to HHH, Stephanie, X-Pac and all the weirdness that revolved around their tangled relationships with each other.

The video pretty much came out in response to him having just heard the news. I don't think he stopped to think about anything before just saying it. I do think he's right that they'll finally induct her postmortem.

Prince was pretty awesome, remember seeing him on the Purple Rain tour in St Paul in 1984, quite the show.  Sheila E. opening and her drum stuff was pretty fun as well.

I finally watched that Kevin Smith story after hearing about it for years.  Was it supposed to be funny?  I generally only believe 10% of what he says anyway but even if that was 100% true....?  He was hired to do a job and got offended that he wasn't asked to do anything besides what he was hired for?  Prince wears the outfits he was known for wearing?  An active Jehovah's Witness proselytizes?   

Seemed like he'd toss out a "---smurfing--- prince" every time the story dragged and every beta in the crowd would applaud enthusiastically.

People live some very dull lives.....

Kevin Smith laments at the end of the discussion: " Prince never said thanks to me... " 

Kevin Smith needs to get a life.

You guys must have not paid any attention.... he was NOT hired to do a job.  He did it as a favor and didn't get a red cent for it.  Prince didn't even bother to say thanks.

If he was stupid enough to do it for free, he can't hold it against Prince for doing it for free.

While most of us don't know her, crime writer Michelle McNamara, wife of Patton Oswalt, and mother of their 7 year-old daughter Alice, has passed away at 46.
I've always enjoyed Patton's work, and have followed the guy on social media for over a decade, so hearing this news is heartbreaking.
